Off to Oklahoma City


Wayne and the boys on their way to the Oklahoma State Fair Cattledog and Sheepdog Trials, wish them luck.  Ricky will also be competing in the Cattledog Futurity while he is there, the futurity is limited to dogs under the age of 30 months as of January 1st 2012. 


Here’s a video of Jake and Wayne doing some prep work this past week:

Working with a Head Dog

Jake is a head dog, he really prefers to avoid heeling at all costs. About the only time you see him heel is when he can't access the head, he will heel in an attempt to get the cows to move over so that he can catch their eye....head head head..

We took Jake down to the Circle C Rodeo Arena in Alden to see how he got along on some rodeo stock, good practice for the upcoming Oklahoma State Fair. He was able to get the steers and one cow moved around and put where Wayne wanted them, sure would have been nice though if he would heeled once or twice, but that's ok, he got it done.

Leaning Tree Sally

Here is a little video of one of our Kess x Ricky pups, we call her Sally, she has only been out on sheep a few times and the calves once. We look forward to seeing what she looks like in a few more weeks compared to when this video was taken.
